Contributors, including R. Bagnall, M. Bierbrier, K. Gschwantler, J. Taylor and S. Walker, give a concise acccount of mummy portraits and their discovery, as well as the Fayum and its people. Extensively illustrated in color, this is a useful book covering a little-known subject. An excellent reference for everyone.

From the book cover: Medical analysis of the mummified bodies of the pharaohs has been described in many books. However this volume shows that the same techniques can be used to study ordinary Egyptians as well. The twenty-one papers in this volume were presented at a British Museum conference in 1990 by leading authorities in paleopathology, molecular archaeology, archaeobotany and archaeozoology. From the diseases that plagued Egyptians to the potential that ancient DNA analysis offers for recreating family relationships, this volume shows the extraordinary potential modern techniques for revealing ancient lives.

Reviewed by Francesca: After summarizing Amenhotep III's reign, the author discusses the reign of Akhenaten, the history of the cult of the Aten and archaeological excavations of Amarna. This slim book contains full-page black and white photographs. Although it contains much information, newcomers to the subject of Amarna might find it difficult to follow the mention of cities, for their names are transliterated from the hieroglyphs; for example 'Waset' is used instead of the more common name, 'Thebes'. An excellent introduction for all interested in Amarna and Akhenaten.

The House of Horus at Edfu
Ritual in an Ancient Egyptian temple

From the book cover: The Temple of Horus at Edfu is one of the best preserved in Egypt. Dating to a time when non-Egyptian kings ruled the country, the inscriptions on its walls are more extensive than in earlier temples. They are in effect source books in stone of Egyptian temple ritual, describing in detail the ceremonies celebrated at Edfu. However, in many of the inscriptions the script used, known as 'Ptolemaic writing,' is one that was deliberately made elaborate and confusing so that its 7000 signs could only be read by a small band of initiates. The language expressed in the script is not that of the native Egyptians of the time but a priestly revival of a much older stage of their language. Both script and language remained un-deciphered for nearly two thousand years but [the author] is one of a handful of Egyptologists who in this century have succeeded in cracking the code. As a result, this is the first book in English to describe the secret rituals that were celebrated in honor of the falcon-headed god, Horus, in his great temple at Edfu, from the Daily Ritual to the grat annual festivals such as the Coronation of the Sacred Falcon, the New Year Festival and the Sacred Marriage between Horus and Hathor of Denderah, goddess of love and intoxication.
